Ross Mill

Belfast | The Carvill Group | Completed 2008

Ross Mill is a regeneration project providing 165 affordable homes and a new shop. The project involved the retention and conversion of a 19th century flax mill and the construction of new terraced houses and apartments. The restoration of the mill and its landmark chimney played a key part in securing public support for the proposals.

Two new streets connect into the site, creating a new urban block, enclosed by new apartment buildings on three sides and the mill. Courtyard parking within the blocks is decked over at first floor level providing shared space for residents’ use. Openings in the deck allow natural light to reach the car park and trees planted at ground level to grow through.
